NATIONAL POLICE OFFICERS MEMORIAL DAY

Celebrated each year on May 15, it is National Police Officers Memorial Day.  On this day, the citizens of the United States pay tribute to the local, state and Federal peace officers.  National Police Officers Memorial Day is part of Police Week.

National Police Officers Memorial Day was created on October 1, 1961.  At that time, Congress asked the president to designate May 15 as a day to honor peace officers.  On October 1, 1962, John F. Kennedy signed the bill into law and in 1994, Bill Clinton made an amendment through Public Law 103-322.  This amendment directed that the United States flag be flown at half-staff on May 15.

“According to a proclamation by George W. Bush in 2002,

“Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week pay tribute to the local, State, and Federal law enforcement officers who serve and protect us with courage and dedication. These observances also remind us of the ongoing need to be vigilant against all forms of crime, especially to acts of extreme violence and terrorism.”  ”   (Wikipedia)

 

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall in Washington, D.C. features the names of more than 19,000 law enforcement officers which have been killed in the line of duty.
